Mentoring First-year Female MIS Faculty: Reflections on the Past Year
The key question from new teachers is usually "When will I know that I am good enough?" The purpose of this paper is to share the mentoring of a first-year female MIS faculty at a small liberal arts college during the past academic year. Two key mentors, both male, are from the computer science and management information systems disciplines respectively. The first-year faculty member was also able to tap the support of other faculty members from other disciplines. The two key mentors were able to give this first-year MIS faculty diverse opinions and perspectives on different academic and self-development issues. Perspectives and lessons learned by the new faculty and the MIS mentor also are presented in this paper.
Keywords: mentoring, first-year female faculty, inexperienced teacher, role models
